DARK HORSE is a triumphant celebration of a working-class Welsh community and the horse they bred for glory. 

In early 2000, Jan Vokes, a barmaid in the village of Cefn Fforest, somehow persuaded a syndicate of villagers to club together and buy a thoroughbred mare, have her serviced by an ageing stallion, and stable the resulting foal on a local allotment. When a prestigious horse trainer then agreed to take on the young animal, the crazy notion of breeding a racing winner began to seem a reality. 

Tracing the events that followed, DARK HORSE boasts all the plot twists of the most ingeniously scripted drama, combining stunning archive footage with artful reconstructions, and capturing the thrill and beauty of the plucky horse – aptly named Dream Alliance – in action.
